lays on her back and applies acrylic paint around her vagina and thighs,
then presses a canvas against herself to produce vagina

"My vagina paintings are meant to prompt exploration of the issues of femininity,
sexuality, culture and the relevance of art. Of course, as with any art, whether

on whatever meaning the viewer may ascribe it. That meaning then becomes a valid
part of the dialogue."
